Hadlock Brook Falls Extract.

For the past week or so here it has rained and it has poured! For one- it must be that that kind of weather harkens back to my Scottish roots or something because when everyone else gets all bummed out about it I find solace and comfort in the dreary. And for two- I know that the waterfalls will be gushing and making for all kinds of interesting photogenic possibilities. So yesterday I went up to the waterfall bridges on Hadlock Stream and the Maple Spring trail just a little ways down and spent a few hours there really taking my time and enjoying it. I have photographed there a bunch so it wasn't really all that much about making important new work as much as enjoying myself with my camera for a while. Ended up making only about a dozen or so different images on my kit and two tourist shots for couples who were mugging with their cell phone cameras- I actually like to do that bit: makes me feel like I'm doing a good deed because you know how it is, you take a picture of your lady and she makes a photo of you but there's nobody to make a photo of the both of you at the place- so I do do that for them. 

Here's an aside that has nothing to do with any of that but something that I really want to get off my chest and put out there: at least 4 different times yesterday I gave a hearty "how do you do!" or a "hi how are ya!" or whatever to people passing on the trails and got a blank stare in return.- ! For the love of Pete people Please, please, please- when you visit Maine you need not be afraid of us here, we're not going to mug you or whatever it is you are so afraid of! Just a hello will suffice. I always thought it was an instinct to return a greeting, but I guess times they are a changing- but I'm not going to stop being cheerful out there until you all beat me down with malevolence so until then- like I say, just say hi when someone else says hi- ok? Ok! Alrighty then.

Have a nice day, Nate, from Maine, Usa.
